Consultants wanted! Just which companies are shouting, "Consultants wanted?" My post on "Who hires consultants?" notes the kinds of companies with jobs for consultants. You’re not likely to find these jobs in the "help wanted" section of your local classifieds. Most companies hire people they know — although a growing number post on Craigslist and other online sites. Usually, consulting work comes through word of mouth. That’s why it’s important to make contact with people likely to hire you. At the very least, print up some business cards and tell your friends and colleagues that you’re looking for consulting work. You’ll probably find that your first job comes from someone who remembers your name. Before you launch a sophisticated marketing plan, start telling your friends, family and former co-workers that you’re looking for work.
